If you have seen my July Wrap Up you will know that I only finished two books in July. I really hope to pull myself out of my reading slump and actually finish some good books this month. I am a part of a small book club with friends so I know I will at least be reading one book this month and I hope to finish two or three more after that.
I am reading this book with my Book Club and I think I am going to really enjoy it!
This is my current read that I just started for this month and it is already so good!
Here’s to hoping August is a successful reading month!
We are four days into August so I think we are past due for our monthly hopeful list. So far for the two months I have posted hopeful lists I haven’t Followed along with them too well. I think that I am just too much of a mood reader to actually plan things and stick to it. As per tradition I will still be posting a hopefuls and I really feel positive about this list!
I have chosen these four books all for pretty specific reasons. I am in quite a few buddy reads this month to help me want to finish more books this month.
“The House in the Cerulean Sea” by TJ Klune
This book has been on my TBR since I started bookstagram a little less than a year ago.
I started my own buddy read on Facebook and this book was this months choice for that buddy read. We have a pretty small group of people but I think it is going to be a really good book for our group.

This book is also part of a buddy read I am in this month with Court.Betweenthecovers feel free to click on the link to join this buddy read as well! The more the merrier!
Honestly, I have been looking forward to this book for about a month now and I have heard so many amazing reviews about this book. I have heard it has a ton of violence in it so just beware of possible trigger warnings.
“Been There, Married That” by Gigi Levangie
I received this book in my June premium book box from One Night Stand With a Book. I absolutely loved this box that I got and honestly the title alone pulled me in!
This will be my main romance read for this month. I am trying to pick a bunch of different genres to try and expand my horizons just a bit.
Have you heard of this book before? It only has a 2.81 star rating on goodreads but also very few ratings so I am willing to give it a chance!
“The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald
First of all this book is very short! I feel like I can knock this book out in a day or two and can help me reach my reading goal for the year.
Next this is considered a classic and I really haven’t read any classics in my life other than in school when I was forced. Let’s be honest I didn’t read those books I just used sparknotes.
Lets get this book under my belt and finally say I have read and finished a classic!
This month I have quite a few different genres selected and I think that is what makes me the most excited about this months picks. I also have two buddy reads this month to help me get back on track with my reading goal and to help make closer friendships with other book lovers! This month has a lot of positive things going for me and I can’t wait to see how I do!
